Born and raised in Grinnell, Iowa; I quickly learned the value of hard work and accountability by working on my family’s farm. My life experience, along with many others, helped create my ongoing curiosity with financial planning which drives me to deliver value to all of our clients on a daily basis.

I reside in Ankeny, Iowa with my two amazing children; Beckett (8) and Briar (6). They are constantly keeping me on my toes which is fun and exhausting all at the same time!
